    Model S dead, "Vehicle may not restart"

    I am out of warranty and got the same alert... then it's prophecy came true and the car would not start. I had it towed to the service center and now am awaiting a new P85 drive unit. I have no idea why that would be the reason, but hey, it's still under that 8 year drivetrain warranty.

    Rattle sound in front left tire area

    very interesting.. you would think that they would check that. It may be that I asked to check the suspension and mentioned the sound and they couldn't find anything wrong or out of normal for the age of the car. thanks.. I will have them check that out

    Rattle sound in front left tire area

    that is what I am thinking too, something loose, like a cap or something touching something metal that bounces on vibration

    Rattle sound in front left tire area

    thank you, I am out of warranty anyway. maybe it's something up above the wheel in the fender area. I have air suspension and it seems to be working ok.

    Rattle sound in front left tire area

    No, it actually doesn't make any noise on bumpy roads.. just on something like the light cobbles/pavers, like it is shaking a rattle a kids rattle. very high pitched... it's hard to record as it only happens in certain circumstances. Not on speed bumps or bumps on a dirt road which we have...

    Rattle sound in front left tire area

    I only notice this when I am driving with the windows open. At the entrance to my development, there is a patch with cobblestones, it's a slight left hand turn and when I ride over it, I hear a strange light rattling sound.. it comes from the right front wheel area. I have brought it in to the...

    Battery coolant heater failure

    The alerts that pop up when this happens are frightening. "Car may not start" "car unable to supercharge" "top speed limited, no regen" I called service, they got me in the next day and replaced it.

    What's next after V10.0?

    I would like the ability to configure my main screen a little more.. I live in Phoenix and can't stand that those seat heater controls and defrost controls are there on the main screen all the time.. I have accidently started to heat my seat more than once, when I meant to lower the temp. why...

    2015 Model S Buyer's Remorse - advice

    I did buy a CPO 2014 almost 2 years ago and my warranty is about up. right now at 90,000 miles I can say that the few times it was in the shop were for inexpensive items.. the 12 v battery was replaced on warranty, and Tesla did a check of the High powered connectors.. that would have been all...
